New York (Tadias) – An internal affairs complaint has been filed against the Garland Police Department by Sophia Zerihun, an Ethiopian woman who says she was roughed up while being removed from a church service by off-duty police officers, FOX 4 news reports.
The incident happened at the Dallas Ethiopian Orthodox Church in Garland, Texas, on Sunday, May 2nd when a female congregate, Yeshi Zerihun, interrupted morning announcements to ask questions about church business, including about the presence of the unusually large number of police officers outside the church that day. She was told her questions were out of order, but other worshipers began shouting for answers.
“That’s when one of the Board members marched in with three or four officers following him,” Zerihun told FOX 4.
